In brief: One contains other

The fovea is the central point of the macula and contains the photoreceptors for you most acute central vision.
They are both important, but the central fovea could be consider most important.

In brief: Both

The fovea is part of the macula.
Arguably the fovea is most important for central vision used for reading but the macula also plays a major role in central vision.
